Judd was 10 years old when his mother died. After she died, his father
brought Judd and his two older brothers back to the hospital to be with their
mother one last time and to recite the 23rd Psalm. After the Psalm had been
read, the family left the hospital room. Judd hadn't gotten too far down the
hallway before he suddenly returned to her room. Holding onto the doorway
with his small hands, he leaned into the room and said strongly, "Bye, Mom."
It was not a final good-bye. It was a good-bye saying, "I'll see you again
real soon, like tomorrow."
